Breaking Badger

B08PQ32GW2.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Breaking Badger by Shelly Laurenston is $1.99! This is book four in the Honey Badger Chronicles series. This one came out a little over a year ago and was mentioned on Hide Your Wallet. What do we think of the new covers?

Fans of Thea Harrison and Nalini Singh won’t want to miss this exciting, funny, and sexy novel in the mega-popular series.

It’s instinct that drives Finn Malone to rescue a bunch of hard battling honey badgers. The Siberian tiger shifter just can’t bear to see his fellow shifters harmed. But no way can Finn have a houseful of honey badgers when he also has two brothers with no patience. Things just go from bad to worse when the badgers rudely ejected from his home turn out to be the only ones who can help him solve a family tragedy. He’s just not sure he can even get back into the badgers’ good graces. Since badgers lack graces of any kind . . .

Mads knows her teammates aren’t about to forgive the cats that were so rude to them, but moody Finn isn’t so bad. And he’s cute! The badger part of her understands Finn’s burning need to avenge his father’s death—after all, vengeance is her favorite pastime. So Mads sets about helping Finn settle his family’s score, which has its perks, since she gets to avoid her own family drama. Besides, fighting side by side with Finn is her kind of fun—especially when she can get in a hot and heavy snuggle with her very own growling, eye-rolling, and utterly irresistible kitty-cat . . .

The “I Do” Dilemma

B09XR6N47F.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

RECOMMENDED: The “I Do” Dilemma by Jayci Lee is $1.99! This one was previously titled Temporary Wife Temptation. Lara recently wrote a Lightning Review of this one and gave it an A-:

There’s a reason I’m mad about tropes. I like to follow a familiar groove, one that hits all the emotional high points that I need. While these old favourites feel slightly stiff in places, overall, it was just the kind of emotional rollercoaster I love being on.

A read-in-one-sitting, fast-paced Rom Com.
Oprah Magazine  recommended as one of the  Best Romance Novels We Couldn’t Put Down in 2020!

Resolute bachelor Garrett Song’s single-minded focus on business is about to pay off. He’s this close to taking the reins of his family’s L.A. fashion empire. But his family is throwing up a roadblock: Marry the Korean heiress they handpicked for him or lose the CEO seat. To foil the plan, he needs a fake bride, fast. As if on cue, Natalie Sobol enters his office, reading him the riot act about breaking company rules…dare he pop the question?

Talk about breaking the rules. Natalie can’t believe her ears when the big boss proposes—and she says, “I do”! Where the heck did that come from? Sure, Natalie needs to show she can provide a stable home to keep custody of her adorable orphaned niece, and adding a husband to the picture, even temporarily will make her case. She’ll benefit from a fake marriage as much as he does. But there’s one hitch: the spark between them. Will red-hot chemistry burn their bargain?

Previously published as Temporary Wife Temptation in 2020.

The Kingdom of Copper

B076P8TD5Y.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty is $2.99 and a Kindle Daily Deal! This is the second book in a trilogy and I doubt can be read as a standalone. I remember Sneezy really loving this series.

S. A. Chakraborty continues the sweeping adventure begun in  The City of Brass conjuring a world where djinn summon flames with the snap of a finger and waters run deep with old magic; where blood can be dangerous as any spell, and a clever con artist from Cairo will alter the fate of a kingdom.

Nahri’s life changed forever the moment she accidentally summoned Dara, a formidable, mysterious djinn, during one of her schemes. Whisked from her home in Cairo, she was thrust into the dazzling royal court of Daevabad—and quickly discovered she would need all her grifter instincts to survive there.

Now, with Daevabad entrenched in the dark aftermath of a devastating battle, Nahri must forge a new path for herself. But even as she embraces her heritage and the power it holds, she knows she’s been trapped in a gilded cage, watched by a king who rules from the throne that once belonged to her family—and one misstep will doom her tribe..

Meanwhile, Ali has been exiled for daring to defy his father. Hunted by assassins, adrift on the unforgiving copper sands of his ancestral land, he is forced to rely on the frightening abilities the marid—the unpredictable water spirits—have gifted him. But in doing so, he threatens to unearth a terrible secret his family has long kept buried.

And as a new century approaches and the djinn gather within Daevabad’s towering brass walls for celebrations, a threat brews unseen in the desolate north. It’s a force that would bring a storm of fire straight to the city’s gates . . . and one that seeks the aid of a warrior trapped between worlds, torn between a violent duty he can never escape and a peace he fears he will never deserve.

Project Hail Mary

B08FHBV4ZX.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Project Hail Mary by Hail Mary is $2.99! This is a sci-fi novel and definitely was a bestseller when it first came out. I haven’t read any of Weir’s sci-fi. Have you?

Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate, last-chance mission–and if he fails, humanity and the earth itself will perish.

Except that right now, he doesn’t know that. He can’t even remember his own name, let alone the nature of his assignment or how to complete it.

All he knows is that he’s been asleep for a very, very long time. And he’s just been awakened to find himself millions of miles from home, with nothing but two corpses for company.

His crewmates dead, his memories fuzzily returning, Ryland realizes that an impossible task now confronts him. Hurtling through space on this tiny ship, it’s up to him to puzzle out an impossible scientific mystery–and conquer an extinction-level threat to our species.

And with the clock ticking down and the nearest human being light-years away, he’s got to do it all alone.

Or does he?

An irresistible interstellar adventure as only Andy Weir could deliver, Project Hail Mary is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival to rival The Martian–while taking us to places it never dreamed of going.
